According to the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the Harvard Medical School, young girls who eat more vegetable fat and nuts during high school are more likely to be protected by breast cancer. The research published today on the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment conducted between 1996 to 2001 on 9,039 females from 9–15 to 18–30 years old, proved that eating vegetable protein reduces the risk of breast cancer in later life. Indeed, the participants who introduced peanut butter or nuts in their diet, twice a week, were less exposed to the disease. In addition, the study shows that consuming regularly beans, lentils, soybeans and corn significantly help to decrease the risk of cancer in women.
